    Talking Realtime View ***FROM*** Space Shuttle Discovery

    It's hanging around the earth now....

    This is the realtime tracking system of shuttle and other satellites..
    NASA - Science@NASA J-Track Spacecraft:
    http://science.nasa.gov/Realtime/JTrack/Spacecraft.html
    http://science.nasa.gov/temp/ShuttleLoc.html
    http://science.nasa.gov/temp/StationLoc.html

    (Space Shuttle Discovery and The Station will get together in Day 3)

    It shows lat/lon/alt data of each ones... if those data are available as feeds, can anybody write tracking Network Link of those satellites/shuttles, then you can always get the view FROM the Discovery...

    Or you can just read numbers from the 2nd URL and write Network Link from your home server...?

    For example, I quickly write down the location of the Station from this site... it was once located at lat:47.8, lon:-118.3, alt:356.1km this morning.

    The view from here will be like this...

    That`s the Space-Shuttle "Explorer", a model of the real shuttles.

    From the site of the "Kennedy Space Center":

    In the Space Shuttle Plaza, guests are met with a jaw-dropping, full-sized NASA Space Shuttle replica - Explorer.

    Here you can experience how Astronauts live and work aboard real spacecraft. Sharing the plaza with Explorer are the other components needed to launch the orbiter: a huge external fuel tank and twin solid rocket boosters.
